It’s pretty much been a full day after I have changed the offer on my best campaign and so far so good. I’m basically posting the results to back up my post yesterday about how powerful networking actually is – especially with your affiliate managers. Having a solid relationship with your affiliate managers will give you a running head start, even if you are a new to the industry.
You need to prove that you are here long term and it’s not just something you are ‘giving a go’ to see if you can make money. Affiliate marketing is not easy and the people who say otherwise are lying to you, if it was really that easy to make tens of thousands each month everyone would be doing it. I fell quite lucky because the campaigns I have launched have made profit from day one, I have paused one of them because it was affecting the results of the one that showed potential.
Anyway, I couldn’t help myself checking my AzoogleAds account a couple of times an hour to see if my affiliate manager was telling the truth or just trying to get my business. For the record I was never doubting you Phil (I know he will be reading this so best not accuse him of anything dishonest ). He is a great affiliate manager
so far and we have set a goal of $500 a day in revenue, I would estimate to reach that within a month based on my performance so far.
With this in mind I’m not sacking off Market Leverage, I would like to have great relationships with both companies and I plan on reaching weekly wires with both of them which will do wonders for my cash flow as I imagine to be pulling in mid $X,XXX a week I will have to be spending some serious money and it will only increase with every campaign.
Below are the results from the 3rd September (last day using the old offer):
Avg CPC: $0.37
These are the results from yesterday with the new offer:
Avg CPC: $0.36
Based on those you can see it did convert better and provided me with a better overall profit and ROI. Obviously yesterday could have been a ‘good’ day which would make the results biased so I will be running it for a few days to see the overall performance. On the other hand those results could of been a bad day so today may be even better today .
The moral of this post is to show how important it is to split test and talk to your affiliate managers, I would be more than happy with the ~$60-$70 profit a day but by making one simple change I got it up to ~$100 a day profit and hope that it will remain in that region.
